For 32 years the Kinsmen Club of Brockville, in partnership with Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville, collects and distributes snowsuits to folks in need. For the 2020 Drive (Nov 7-Dec 5), the community donated over 1000 articles of snowsuits, hats, mitts and a few winter boots, and new suits were purchased with monetary donations.
A huge thank you, especially at this time of COVID-19 precautions, to this year's drop off locations:
Jiffy Auto Service
Brockville Chiropractic & Health Association
Stingers Indoor Paintball
Brokcville Home Hardware Building Centre
Family & Children's Services of LLG
YMCA of Eastern Ontario
Peir Church - distribution location
Each year, through the generosity of supportive community residents, the program gives away over 500 snowsuits to folks in need. This year about 240 suits were given out at the distribution events, schools were reached out to, and another 200-300 more will be distributed by Family & Children's Services.
